SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
|September 20, 2014|
In recent years the optimal transportation problem of Monge and Kantorovich has been a focal point for exciting mathematical developments combining calculus of variations, partial differential equations, convexity and geometric measure theory, as well as interesting applications to models from physics, geometry, computer vision, earth science and economics.
Our aim is to bring together experienced and young researchers working in a diversity of related areas to share their discoveries and discuss open problems and perspectives for the future of this blossoming field.
The conference is supported by a U.S. National Science Foundation Focused Research Group on Optimal Transportation, and will be hosted by the Fields Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Toronto, Canada, Monday August 20 - Saturday August 25, 2001.
Some funding is available to defray the local expenses of young researchers
and scientists without grants.
